Huntington, NY –Boy Scout Troop 78 recently celebrated their newest Eagle Scout, Nicholas Vizza, at his Court of Honor on Sunday, August 6th at the Halesite Fire Department. Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D was proud to be in attendance to recognize Nicholas’s great achievement and extraordinary project.
Nicholas dedicated his service project to his father Francis Vizza, an Air Force Veteran and devoted baseball coach who passed away in 2015. With the help of the Town of Huntington’s General Services, and in particular the Director, Mark Tyree, Nicholas installed a 25 foot flagpole with a circular cement base filled with flowers at the Mill Dam Park baseball fields. The American flag has always been a strong and prominent symbol in the Vizza household so this is a fitting tribute and wonderful contribution to our community.
“I am inspired by Nicholas’s thoughtful and meaningful project memorializing his father’s life and love of baseball,” said Legislator Spencer. “On behalf of the residents of the 18th Legislative District, I thank and congratulate Nicholas on a job well done!”
